Do you have a set reading time (before bed, perhaps?) Do you read more at night or during the day? Is there a day of the week that you set aside to catch up on reading?
My day begins and ends with reading, for the first thing I do upon rising (after pouring that first cup of coffee!) is settle into my favorite armchair with a book. My living room faces east, so I can keep one eye on the sunrise while I read, and the morning sky is often streaked with orange and magenta as the sun makes its way above the stand of oak trees in my across-the-street neighbor’s back yard. Before long, at least one of the dogs will join me, climbing sleepily onto the back of the chair behind me. And so we usually pass the first hour of the day. Mornings are the most productive reading time for me, and I try to keep a notebook at hand to jot down page numbers or quotes, or thoughts that strike me while reading.
At close of day, in those last few moments before falling asleep, I take up my book once again. It provides solace from the worries and concerns of the day, and lets my mind drift into a different place before I fall asleep.
Now tell me, when and where do you do your best reading?
